Why Zero? Well – that’s the kind of day it’s been.
Don’t get me wrong. This is not a bad thing at all. It jsut means that I have zero exciting news to report – or any news for all that.
Unless you consider finding and filling the hummingbird feeder important – or baking hiking cookies exciting – or driving Simon to and from the mechanic earth-shattering.
And there was that moment when I could have died but didn’t. It happened like this: I pulled out of the driveway and looked in the rear-view mirror and saw a big truck bearing down on me. I thought he was going too fast so I pulled over at Red Mountain Road to let him pass, pulled back out behind him – 2 seconds later, he veered wildly and crashed into the ditch, the whole truck turning over on its side. The driver was okay. I doubt I would have been if I had stayed in front of him.
So wasn’t that lucky for me? My guardian angel working overtime?
Then there was the phone call with the client, discussing the new writing gig. It sounds like fun. Challenging. Something new and different, and goddess knows I’m always up for something unique.
So yeah – that’s been my day. And you know what? I’m good with that. Here’s what’s important. I’m home with the people I love.
In the big picture of life, what can be more important or exciting that that? The answer is zero.
